Re: Assessing New Laptop Battery

Well, that battery crapped out today. At least it kept me going outside our library using the wifi until we got our Internet service back. Can anybody recommend a battery brand besides Dell OEM? I am not going to pay $160 US for a battery for a 14 year old laptop. That's $160 toward something newer ...

/Tmp or Not

I will be installing 20 Cinnamon. I plan to have:
/
/tmp
/swap
/home
free space

Do I need to have /tmp?
The reason I ask is that when I installed 18.0 with the above scheme things that were supposed to go to tmp filled up / instead. I solved that by combining /tmp and / into one partition.

Re: Assessing New Laptop Battery

I do not think it is racist to refer to the Fascist regime and corporations that sell us tons of junk, millions of tons of junk, trade in bad faith, etc. That's quite different to referring to someone of Chinese ethnicity in a poor manner. I am in favor of stronger trade restrictions with China. Bou...

Is it mis-labelled? matter of a "mis-chipped" rather than mis-labelled battery, What Chip? The batteries in 73 WH and the 87WH are the same but the only difference is a chip inside the package? I began to suspect that all the 87 WH ones were really only 73WH. I tried to get my hands on a ...

I deleted the printer and reinstalled it. It now prints single sided or Duplex as needed. No extra sheets. With Writer You need to go to Properties within Writer and select Duplex, or Off for single sided.
